  • Ready In:
  • Makes about 2 cups

Tip: Include some cilantro stems along with the leaves for the boldest flavor. Or improvise by substituting other fresh herbs for the cilantro: basil, parsley, or mint all make a lively dressing.


  • 1 package (12.3 ounces) silken tofu, drained in a fine-mesh strainer
  • ½ cup rice wine vinegar
  • ¼ cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, crushed or minced
  • ½ bunch fresh cilantro


  1. Combine the tofu, vinegar, soy sauce, and garlic in a blender or food processor, and purée until smooth.
  2. Add the cilantro, and process again just until the cilantro is chopped.
  3. Pour the dressing into a jar, cover, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 5 days.

Delicious but a little on the salty side. Would make a great dressing for a Mexican salad or burrito bowl or even dipping sauce for pita chips. The possibilities are endless. Thank you for sharing!
